NAME

       VolserLog - Traces Volume Server operations

DESCRIPTION

       The VolserLog file records a trace of Volume Server (volserver process)
       operations on the local machine and describes any error conditions it
       encounters.

       If the VolserLog file does not already exist in the /var/log/openafs
       directory when the Volume Server starts, the server process creates it
       and writes initial start-up messages to it. If there is an existing
       file, the Volume Server renames it to VolserLog.old, overwriting the
       existing VolserLog.old file if it exists.

       The file is in ASCII format. Administrators listed in the
       /etc/openafs/server/UserList file can use the bos getlog command to
       display its contents. Alternatively, log onto the file server machine
       and use a text editor or a file display command such as the UNIX cat
       command. By default, the mode bits on the VolserLog file grant the
       required "r" (read) permission to all users.

       The Volume Server records operations only as it completes them, and so
       cannot recover from failures by reviewing the file. The log contents
       are useful for administrative evaluation of process failures and other
       problems.
